Teller (of Penn and Teller) shows host Ira Glass how he invented one of his most beautiful and puzzling routines.

Cheryl, my wife of nearly 30 years, and I have spent years talking about and planning for my walk for 2018. The kids are grown (though not fully independent quite yet), the house is sold and the career that supported my family well but never fulfilled me is soon to be in the past.

I’ve always had a passion for hiking and backpacking and have done about 500 miles in sections on the AT.

I'm planning on starting my 2018 thru-hike on March 15th. I grew up in southern New Hampshire taking summer car-camping trips with my family to the Whites, gazing out the back window at their massive stature and dreaming of sitting at the top of them.
